    Abstract

    In an earlier paper [1] we described a new method for the detection of latent fingerprints that involved illuminating an exhibit with high-intensity argon-laser light and viewing the resulting yellow-green inherent fingerprint luminescence. The range of utility of the method could be extended, when needed, by treatment of the exhibit under scrutiny with fluorescent materials.
